7 5 > The FH Campus Wien Teaching and Learning Philosophy We here at the FH Campus Wien take learning very seriously, and from a perspective that is very different from many other institutions. Our basic education philosophy stems from the idea that there has to be a careful mix of lectures, blended learning, hands-on application and individually structured mentoring. For us, it is not enough to have students simply attend our institution, and walk away with a degree. Those who attend the FH Campus Wien are entitled to a top-rated education from some of the best and most qualified instructors in their fields. There has to be a commitment and connection between students and staff alike that is a statement of international standards, lifelong learning of new practices, all coupled with a foundation of support. In short, we believe that students who attend our university should feel proud to be a part of our organization, and, more to the point, confident that the education they worked for was dedicated to the belief in making each student realize their goals and career potential. To help students accomplish such goals we have worked on many aspects that all add into the overall structure of our advanced education system. These items include challenging the quality of education, good teaching practices, didactic training methods, gender diversity, the use of new technology and elearning and application-oriented research and development. Rounding out our customized international student strategy is the Buddy System mentoring program. We realize that some of our international students need help with their studies, and that there is also a real need with integration help, not only regarding the process of registration in Austria, but with the who, what, where of living in Vienna. We have a select group of senior students who volunteer to help some of our international students with adjustment into a fuller, more rounded life in Vienna. This can include the basics of housing, where to get a hair styling, how to find a doctor, and even which clubs and pubs are the best to meet other young people.
